Timetables in Cape Verde are not to be taken seriously; don’t be shocked if the boat leaves ahead of time or if the flight is abruptly rescheduled for tomorrow. This is something to think about if you want to go island hopping. Flights may be delayed or canceled due to weather and other factors. Carry your toothbrush with you and prepare ahead of time, particularly if you need to meet an overseas connection.

By plane

The bulk of the islands are served by TACV Cabo Verde [www]  airlines on a regular basis.
